HMS ENDEAVOUR

The H.M.S. Endeavour was launched in 1765. Three years later she took of for a voyage under the command of Captain James Cook.

On board, under the command of Lieutenant James Cook, was a crew of 72 men, 12 marines and 11 civilians. The civilians were a scientific team drawn together by Joseph Banks.  It included Daniel Solander (scientific advisor) and Sydney Parkinson (artist).

It was during this voyage that Australia was discovered and Tahiti and numerous islands sighted. When Endeavour returned to England in 177, she brings back all kinds of animals and vegetables unknown in Europe.

Captain Cook's 1768-1771 voyage is considered to be of historical importance contributing a great wealth of navigation, seamanship, exploration, and geography to the world's knowledge. During this voyage Captain Cook was the first captain to calculate longitudinal position with greater accuracy using a mathematical formula developed in the 1760s. Cook is also the first to reduce scurvy--a serious and sometimes fatal result of dietary deficiency on long voyages.
